I also wonder if there are situations where the jobname is not yet known at the time when a filename needs to be recorded. (What exactly gets recorded? Everything *tex opens? If so, using \openin on the command line before \input would probably cause this, for example. Or a pre-\input \font command that causes a .tfm to be read.)
